The Center for Story is being designed by Method Studio, Inc., with Joe Smith, AIA, LEED A.P., as the lead architect. The Center will be a beautiful landmark in our City and will incorporate brick and glass to complement the City Center building. The Center will be connected to the Library’s south wing on the west side of the City Center building. This site preserves all the parking and ball fields to the east of the Library. It also preserves the "heritage trees" in front of the City Center building; these trees are original to the site.
The auditorium will be designed to accommodate a wide variety of program types and audience sizes. The main floor will seat 290. The balcony will seat another 95 and is designed to go dark when not in use. The seating layout will place the audience in a 180° arc and will include inside aisles for ease of access. Seating will be raked to maximize sightlines. The stage will have a detachable apron that extends into the audience to provide greater intimacy between audience and presenter. Acoustics will be designed to serve a variety of program types, functioning for clarity of speech as well as musical performance. A meeting room which seats sixty, and the stage which will be designed to be usable as a second meeting space, will be used for workshops, seminars, and program rehearsals. See the floorplan layout below.
A parking and traffic study completed in June 2011 confirmed that there is sufficient parking for this new facility with the existing stalls around the City’s main complex. Patrons attending The Center’s evening programs will enjoy the close proximity of parking immediately south of the City Center building. This lot is largely vacant in the evenings when City offices are closed.
Detailed construction drawings are now completed. If all funding is in place, construction could go out to bid sometime in 2013. Construction is anticipated to take approximately 10 months.
